 Setup the computers use in EE305 , the ethernet IC of attansic is a very big problem , we can't find the driver for linux , and try to use a Realtek ethernet card to take place the Attansic's work.

 But when using the Realtek card , we can't provide the ethernet boot , which has been lock on the Attansic PXE on BIOS setting .

 Trying to flash the bios by Realtek PXE code , but the AMI bios only provide 512k Byte and the code has 218k Byte . So we try many times to delete the old code to make more rooms.

 Finally found that the Attansic has been Acquire by Atheros , and the drivers they provide can be use on our Cent-OS system.

 We change the antivirus software , we use " PC-cillin " to replace " Symantec " to improve the problem of Symantec SMC crash.

 Finally finish our work in B08 , and start to check the PCs in EE305.

 We met a lot of difficulty in here , EE305 , such as the switch , old PCs network. Have no idea to slove the problem of swich , which can't provide our DHCP server work in Dos.

 Change the teacher's PC to new one which has 2G Ram.

 We found out that the swich must turn on the " Fastlink " that way the DHCP can work in Dos.

 Define all the Mac address of PCs , and make the line connect to the right port on swich , from  right to left , from first row to the final .

 Make 2G Ram-PCs recover by our image , all of them can be open into the OS .

 P.S. : 3 PCs can't work , one might be the motherboard problem , one is the power , and one is the hard disk.

            If possible change the mouse and keyboards , some of them use RS232 to connect , which can't be drive in some situation.

 We made the image of the old PCs, those PCs can be recovey by internet now , but cost more time then the others, because of the slowest HD read speed.

 Check the PCs and make sure they can be use in class for C programming

 Change the Realtek ethernet card to replace the Atttansic IC

19:00~05:00 

 We recover all the PCs in EE305, check for the stability of those PCs and install some software one by one
